I have a table "Addresses" and the Feature "streets". The feature "Streets" are lines.

I need to do a relation with this table with this feature. What I do?

I tried built a "relationship class". The type is "1-M". It is the line of a street with the table of a adress. But happens an error. I can´t split the line of a street. Anyone knows how to fix it?

That is the error: "The feature could not be split. The field is not nullable."

I found the error "FDO_E_FIELD_NOT_NULLABLE" description on a ESRI site. But they dont told how to fix it. This is the link: http://edndoc.esri.com/arcobjects/8.3/ComponentHelp/esriCore/fdoError.htm

I need the relationship and to split the streets! How to solve/fix this error?

The real problem is: I have a Feature of streets, called "Eixos". And a Table of Addresses, called "Logradouros". I tried with Domains. But when I run a script python that make "Table to Domain" give me the error of "ERROR 000464: Cannot get exclusive schema lock". But I cannot kill the other users. Do you know a good solution to do a relationship Feature Street vs Table Address? Any tip? Pls! –  ChristianAbreu Sep 17 '12 at 18:48
Is this feature class in SDE? Or is it a file GDB or a personal GDB? Are there other users actually viewing this data? –  Rayner Sep 17 '12 at 19:31

You'll need to obtain exclusive access to the data by getting the other users to close ArcMap temporarily. It should then allow you to split the line. Hope this helps.

Thanks Rayner. I think those are the only options. But I still think ArcGIS is deficient. ArcMap should have a better way to relate a Layer with an Oracle table. It should be like the relationship Genexus. –  ChristianAbreu Oct 12 '12 at 1:30
